Tuesday Turn About #140 Pressing On

Tuesday Turn About #140 Pressing On

Check out last week’s party for more inspiration!

It’s hard to write a post that is meant to celebrate the work of so many bloggers when our current world is in such turmoil. The unrest and tragic events happening on the other side of the world are heartbreaking. The devastation is hard to look at.

Closer to home and within our own blogging community, two precious ladies have passed away. The sadness is overwhelming for this community and for the families who are suffering.

And even closer to home, we are each suffering with so much. Family members passing away, caring for our aging parents, disruption within our families, dealing with Covid and the division it has brought, and so many other heartaches that we face each day as humans living on this side of heaven.

When 911 happened, I remember something President Bush said. He encouraged us to not let this bring us down otherwise the terrorists have won.

He encouraged us to continue living our lives, going to work, visiting family, going out to dinner with friends. Even though it felt so strange to do so, we did and it helped us to heal collectively.

So I encourage you today to do the same.

Go on with your day-to-day life even though it is hard.

Love your people with intention.

Say the words of encouragement to others instead of holding it in for another time.

Look for beauty in nature and relish it and the season it represents.

Pray for someone the moment you know they need it.

Don’t put off saying you are sorry.

Weigh your words before you speak especially if you are angry.

Take stock of your many blessings.

Continue to write your posts to encourage, educate, entertain, inspire, and engage with your audience.

Let’s honor the bloggers who worked so hard to bring amazing content to their followers and readers.

Here is a post from each of the bloggers who passed away recently. If you click and read no other post in this link party, I would ask you to click, read, comment, and pin from these two ladies as a way of honoring them and the work they accomplished. Let’s do this as a memorial of sorts that bloggers understand.

Paula, Virginia Sweet Pea

I’m sharing Paula’s most recent post because it is such an example to me personally showing how Paula with all that she faced in her cancer battle, still posted. She still shared what she could. She still participated in the Home and Decor Encore group she belonged to.

She pressed on.

Michelle, The Painted Hinge

As I scrolled through Michelle’s blog to find a post to share, I saw all of the Farmhouse Link Party posts that she shared up until the time she had to step away from blogging for health reasons. I’m amazed that she selflessly continued on with the link party for as long as she did.

I decided to share her most recent tutorial as a way of showing the amazing and beautiful work she did.

The creativity that is in this world of blogging never ceases to amaze me! Look was Rachel from Tea and Forget Me Knots upcycled! She took this children’s globe that was ordinary and made it a beautiful and unique work of art! Great job Rachel!
